6:00 pm
pointing, you get a company with a lot of bay area employees and a lot of bay area investors that made a big mistake and it's costing you money. hp investors feeling the sting of this morning's weak earnings report and the admission it spent way too much money for autonomy software. this isn't the first time hp's been in this position. >> a lot of red here. hewlett-packard's conference call is going on right now. >> to the frustration of its shareholders, hp has a history of spending money without getting much in return. former ceo carly fiorina bought compaq for $25 billion. it led to a backlash that ultimately cost her the job. she was replaced by mark herd, who, in addition to buying palm for $1.2 billion, then quickly cancelling hp's palm related products was ousted over financial and personal improprieties.
6:01 pm
the next hp ceo bought autonomy software for $11.5 billion. then he was fired. among the hp board members approving the deal, current hp ceo meg whitman. she says her company was lied to by autonomy. >> we believe that there is a willful effort on the part of certain members of autonomy management to mislead shareholders when autonomy was a publicly held company and mislead potential buyers, including hp. >> so in a move sure to overshadow its new line of products, hp is taking an $8.8 billion charge on the autonomy deal, admitting it made a huge mistake, even though it's kind of glad it bought it. >> listen, what i will tell you about autonomy is we still like the business. we like the technology. we think it's going to be an important part of hp's -- hp software's growth strategy, but it is not as valuable as we had believed it to be. >> so what do you do about hp?
6:02 pm
buy stock when it's low or stand back and let the drama play out? >> frankly, what we're seeing all of the errors, hp is not dead yet, but if they can't get this turned around, their profits could evaporate and they could be in big trouble. >> with investors running for the exits, it's clear that trouble has already started. again, hp stock price down to its lowest level in a decade as of tonight. as for autonomy, the former ceo of the company a, the man who sold it to hp, responding today by denying meg whitman's charges. this whole thing will likely end up in court. >> fascinating story. thank you. well, slick roads and rain. it's getting sloppy. you see the wet roads. be extra cautious. let's turn things over to our
6:03 pm
chief meteorologist in our weather center. jeff. >> yeah, it's a really great point there. just takes a few showers to make things that much more dangerous, especially in the holidays. we have so many more travelers out on the roadways. you can see this slow-moving storm system is holding on to a decent amount of rainfall, especially in the north bay. that's where we've already picked up a quarter to a half inch of rain. visibility reducing quite a bit, as is rainfall coming down at a very good clip there at highway 101. we're expecting our heavier batch here for downtown san francisco for the next 21 minutes. points to the south across the peninsula. also, oakland to hayward are finding developing showers. worst delays at sfo right now running about 2 1/2 hours behind. the next 24 hours could keep one to two-hour delays throughout tomorrow's forecast. we'll let you know when this storm clears out coming up. >> see you then, jeff. >> well, put your pants on.
6:04 pm
no more private parts in public places in san francisco. that's the ruling from the board of supervisors which passed a controversial ban on nudity. vote was tight, 6-5. the ban does not outlaw nudity all the time. being in the buff will still be allowed during certain permitted events such as gay pride and the fulsome street fair. the bottom line, come february with when the ban go into effect, there will be a $100 fine if your bottom is seen sans cover in public. new tonight, a death row sentence for a double murder case at richmond toll plaza. 49-year-old nathan burruss laughed as the sentence was read to him. he mocked the victims' families throughout the sentencing phase, repeatedly telling the jury he was happy to go to death row. one female juror said the panel
6:05 pm
was frustrated by the long delays and thought death might be too good for him but they feared he would kill other inmates as he promised in the witness stand. cleaning your house and then cleaning you out. even some of the most trusted maids turn out to be criminals. it's happening now to some families on the peninsula. here's chris sanchez. >> reporter: 36-year-old martha ramirez was a trusted housekeeper. now she's behind bars on felony burglar charges, accused of stealing from people who trusted her in their homes. two people in bryant street had used the same housekeeper for years with no problem until that housekeeper took on a new helper, martha ramirez. >> together they realized they were missing some jewelry. they contacted a third person who was also missing items.
6:06 pm
>> reporter: police found jewelry and even costume jewelry in a mattress in her home. they also found a pawn receipt. >> one of our victims had an antique rolex taken. it was a world war ii relic handed down from a grandparent. that item has not been recovered yet. it's a rose-colored rolex watch. >> reporter: is a site dedicated to helping people find domestic employees. they say when hiring a housekeeper, verify work experience and references. ask a friend or neighbor to drop by unannounced to check on the housekeeper, and if you are particularly concerned, you can request background and credit check, driving records, even a drug test. housekeepers often work in more than one area. that's why police are working with area agencies to figure
6:07 pm
outs whether there could be other victims in other cities. getting something delivered soon? hope it stays on your front porch. this is the time of year that delivery thefts spike. case in point, this video. watch. the woman caught on camera stealing off a front porch. police released the tape of the woman taking the package hoping someone will recognize her. she also took a bag of canned foods that were supposed to be donations for charity. police say she arrived shortly after ups left. well, they'll don't negotiate after a strike disrupted service at the port of oakland today. this comes at a time when containers are supposed to be moving holiday gifts. union members hit the picket lines before dawn today, including janitors, clerks, electricians who have been without a contract for 17 months. on the docks, workers seemed to support the strike. outside, truckers waited in huge lines with nothing to pick up or deliver. >> how do you feel about sitting and waiting? >> sad. not feeling good.
6:08 pm
i have to produce, you know, put the food on the table. we're sitting here for nothing. >> a spokesperson for the port says they are acting in good faith and trying to get situation resolved. but they are facing a $1.3 billion debt. the union also went on strike at oakland airport. travel has not been impacted, though. it's happening again. bay area nurses on strike today. about 5,000 of them picketing at ten local hospitals. >> the scenario has played out before. they've held a strike more than half a dozen times in a little more than a year. >> in tonight's reality check, sam tries to pull the curtain away from the debate and shows us what's at stake and whether the contract dispute will ever be resolved. >> good evening. i wouldn't bet the farm on it. both sides have facts and figures that prop up their arguments. what we're concerned about is the truth of this never ending conflict. the truth is that the california nurse's association is trying to protect the richest contract in its union and the richest contract, for that matter in the
6:09 pm
entire country. both sides acknowledge that, but the truth is also that hundreds of part-time nurses could end up with no health care at all if the proposal is pushed through. power, it's a relative term for the california nurses association. a total of seven strikes in just over a year has netted little progress and no deal on a union contract that expired in the middle of 2011. >> what we're asking for is nothing more than what we have. we're not asking for anything more than the contract that we have. >> but the contract the nurses have, which includes three hospitals in the east bay, is the richest in the country. by both sides' admission. >> they're very, very well compensated, and they should be. the bay area is expensive. they're the top of the heap. >> just how high up on that heap is up for debate. using the same w-2 forms, health
6:10 pm
officials say the average nurse pulls in $136,000 for a full-time position. the california nurses association counters it's more like $100,000. no matter how you parse the numbers, there's a larger problem at play here. only a small fraction of the nursing and tech employees on these three campuses are actually full-time or work at least 40 hours, meaning they don't get that kind of pay. under a new proposal, they could lose their health care coverage, the biggest tug-of-war in the entire contract dispute. >> what we're asking them in order to receive full-time benefits, that they work at least 30 hours a week. that's very normal in the work environment. >> the reality is somewhere in the middle. the health management says it's in the company's best interest to get as many part-time employees up to 30 hours a week as possible so they qualify for health care and benefits. when i asked if those 30-hour plus jobs would be guaranteed to current part timers, i received no promises.
6:11 pm
and hang in the balance are 481 part-time employees who stand to lose their health care. lastly, about the allegations of greed. i asked summit's vice president of medical affairs, what's driving the company's belt tightening? >> we have had big changes in our financial picture as have many hospitals throughout the area. what we're trying to do is make sure that we're surviving, viable, we're thriving organization as we move into the future. >> so the question becomes, does the health care giant suter need to be cutting its costs? let's take a glance now further into the numbers. here's a look at sutter's total income over the last three years. it's an average of $733 million. a total sum earned of $2.2 billion over that time frame. so what's the bottom line here? sutter could probably afford to maintain the same pay and benefits for its staff. it's a compensation that the staff members will fiercely defend since it took them 60
6:12 pm
years of collective bargaining to earn it in the first place. but will the strike help the nurses keep their pay and benefits? not if a repeat of today happens, where nurses crossed the picket lines and went to work. given that kind of backdrop, you could probably expect more strikes. back to you. >> thank you very much, sam. still ahead at 6:00, we're going to take you live to the orange carpet at the premier for the giants world series dvd. >> also, the latest after a small plane crashes here in the bay area. and how often do medical emergencies happen at 30,000 feet in the air? the investigative unit looks at what airlines should be doing. a big and bold move forward for the new bay bridge. holding its own. the important milestone for the new span of that bridge. back in a moment.
6:13 pm
6:14 pm
6:15 pm
a small plane made an emergency landing into a marsh near san rafael airport this morning. an faa spokesman said the pilot apparently had engine problems while taking off. the pilot did have some minor injuries. the plane is registered to a vallejo resident, but it's unknown if he was the one flying. how do you maneuver and support a deck that weighs 32 tons? well, very carefully. today, another high-wire act on the new span of the bay bridge. here's nbc bay area's joe risotto jr. >> reporter: just's east of treasure island, the new span of the bay bridge rises from the bay. for some who have overseen this project over many years remember the days when the picture wasn't so rosy. >> it's had budget trouble repeatedly. it's had design controversy. it's had all sorts of issues.
6:16 pm
>> reporter: today, steve hemminger wasn't dwelling on the past. it was a time to celebrate the present. there were many, many days when i was never sure we'd get this far. >> today marked a major milestone for the new bridge. for the first time, the self-anchored single-suspension span was holding its own. >> this was the last major milestone we had to meet, which was transferring the load of this immense bridge on to the cable system. >> reporter: after months of work, crews have finished shifting the load of the 32-ton deck on a 200 suspender cables. >> we've taken the entire weight of the self-anchored suspension bridge and placed it on the cable system that will hold it in place for 150 years. >> reporter: workers used jacks to increase tension on the cables, transferring the weight to the bridge's single cable and tower. during the transfer, the deck actually shifted 30 feet. at the end, it was a giant sigh
6:17 pm
of relief. >> we were never afraid we were going to drop the bridge into the bay, but it could have taken us a lot longer. >> reporter: the work marks the last major hurdle before the bridge is scheduled to open on labor day of next year. but there's still plenty to do. the entire structure needs to be painted and the span's roadways still needs asphalt. cal trans may be the only state agency not praying for rain. >> the more dry days, the further we can get on the work that needs to be done. >> reporter: in the meantime, crews continue to wrap the span's nearly mile-long single cable as this engineering marvel jumps from the page as of blueprints that much closer to starting work. joe risotto jr., nbc bay area news. >> does look impressive. there may soon be a new way to get around the south bay. the light rail line is planning to be extended. 1 1/2 miles will be extended at the winchester stop.
6:18 pm
it's expected to cost $175 million. they will hold a public meeting to discuss the idea on december 4th. that'll be at the campbell public library. let's bring in our chief meteorologist. he's going to talk about our thanksgiving forecast. a lot of people on the move, going to grandma's house and everything else. >> going all over the place. good thing about this storm system is it's going to move in. it's going to push on out. it's going to get wet for some holiday travel, but not over thanksgiving. that's the good news. let's get you into the north bay. that's where the rainfall has been very heavy. also up into the hills of the north bay. we've squeezed out a half inch to an inch of rainfall. from the valleys to santa rosa, it's been quite a bit less. finally, it's starting to move to the south. it's been very slow. there's a lack of upper level energy. that's why we've been dealing with this storm system for the past 24 hours. right now, more consistent rainfall starting to approach san francisco. it's not overly heavy, but it's going to add to these roadways being very slick across the
6:19 pm
northern peninsula. continuing developing light showers from oakland to hayward to redwood city. at sfo we have delays over two hours. if you're going there to take off on a flight tonight, lucky you. if you're going to pick somebody up, you may have to wait a little bit longer than expected. we talked about that heavier rainfall way up past santa rosa. cobb mountain and also north of napa picking up 5 inches with this storm system in just the past 24 hours. a viewer sending that in. thank you so much. another example of how much those mountains are squeezing out that moisture. that's why there's not too much left here. by the time it gets to santa rosa, only 0.33 inches. 56 in cupertino. 66 in san jose. the crew is dead on tonight.
6:20 pm
ed, eva, and will back in the control room saying we have an awesome camera in san jose. look at these clouds starting to roll on in. the clouds lowering, a sign of some of those showers that will be here eventually as we head into the overnight hours. thank you so much, guys, back in the control room. always working hard. this slow-moving system is gradually going to be pushing to the south throughout tomorrow morning. so overall, totals will be all right. they're not going to be as heavy as last friday and saturday. looking for about 0.25 to 0.50 inches of rainfall. throughout tonight, we'll find these showers starting to push off to the south. by 11:00 p.m., south bay might still be on the dry side. we may not even get any showers in the south of the east bay until 5:00 a.m. for tomorrow. if you're doing any traveling, looks like clear weather building in throughout 1:00 and 2:00 p.m. for tomorrow. some sunny skies throughout wednesday afternoon. more coming up in the seven-day forecast later on the show. back to you. >> okay.

6:24 pm
>> so many people traveling, investigative reporter examines what happens when medical emergencies happen at 30,000 feet. elise, we often -- do we find out about these evens? >> not that often. we found that airlines are tracking this information internally. but there's no central database to find out how often passengers need in-flight medical help. that's because the industry doesn't have to report it. and there's growing criticism the current policy could come at a cost to travelers. >> this could be a potentially life-threatening situation. >> when there are medical problems in the sky, 90% of commercial airlines in the u.s. will call medaire. >> typically the captain or flight attendant will contact us through satellite phone or even through the aircraft radio. >> the private company based in tempe, arizona, gives advice to pilots, flight attendants, or any medical professional who may be on board. >> medical events are actually rare. we can't estimate one medical
6:25 pm
event for every 30,000 passengers carried. >> how often do in-flight medical events occur? >> that's a very good question. nobody really knows. >> the faa does not require airlines to report in-flight medical events. >> they're in a contained environment, so knowing what the most common illnesses and injuries and events that occur can really help better prepare with them in a more effective manner. >> the faa does require that airlines carry certain items in a medical kit. we discovered what's in those kits can vary from airline to airline. for more information, go to our website,, and be sure to watch our full information at 11:00. >> okay, elise. see you tonight. if you have a tip for our investigative unit, give us a

6:43 pm
>> they are all part of his money trail, willing investors joining a growing list of victims. >> i lost over $50,000. >> i invested more than $100,000. >> how many of you thought this was a good investment? they are also part of a group, 18 different bay area investors, a total of nearly $2 million. how many of you believe you're a victim of a crime? >> there's something wrong when all those people put up their money and got nothing back. >> harry osborne has an inside perspective. he worked as a saleman for the guy who has all their money. he watched the investment opportunity crumble. >> i think a lot of this was a scam, too. i think he was paying the interest from the people who were putting more money in. >> here's how it worked. investors were lured by advertisements in the san jose mercury and other newspapers promising a 10% return.
6:44 pm
their investment secured by these pink slips. >> they have pink slips that have been sold a long time ago. >> there's some funny math in that presentation. >> there are errors in that presentation. >> this is a recognized forensic accountant. nbc bay area obtained a copy of the presentation. it says the investment is 100% secured. nowhere is your money safer. and, guarantees a fixed 10% annual return. >> it leads you to believe there is a ponzi scheme here. >> and here's the guy with all the money. he's a long time san jose businessman and car dealer. you might remember him from our investigation back in april. >> it is my problem. you know why? because you've stolen money from my mother. >> in that case, our reports exposed him for trying to walk away from $70,000 owed to a customer. >> so what did to you with the
6:45 pm
money? >> it got sucked in a black hole. >> and that appears to be a continuing theme for him and his businesses. >> do you think he's aware of what he's doing to all these people? >> absolutely. >> this recently filed bankruptcy document shows he has a lot of missing money. he's asked a judge to wipe out more than $10 million in debt. it includes nearly $2 million from those used car investors. $600,000 to the irs for employee payroll taxes collected nearly two decades ago and never paid. and more than $2.8 million to the state of california for unpaid sales taxes. >> if they don't pay them to the state of california, is that a crime? >> it is a crime, and we have to go after the money. >> take a look. his bankruptcy filing shows he owes california taxpayers $2.8 million, debt dating back six
6:46 pm
years, never paid. and he has not been charged with a crime. six years and nearly $3 million. how does somebody get away with that? >> that's hypothetical. >> it's factual. it's on this. >> i'm not going to this document. >> the state board of equalization says law prevents it from explaining why california taxpayers don't have the tax dollars collected. we also found this interesting. here's a letterhead sheriff's advisory committee. right there it says it. is that a problem? ron is a member of the santa clara county sheriffs advisory board, a nonprofit group supporting and affiliated with the sheriffs department. does this concern you? >> it does concern me. i want to make sure we have good people that are affiliated with that organization because they do work with us. >> you're the sheriff. will you recommend that he's removed from your advisory board? >> yes. >> so sheriff smith has called for some government
6:47 pm
accountability. he's a san jose businessman with a financial resume showing more than $10 million owed to the federal government, the state of california, and dozens of bay area business partners. now many are calling for even more accountability. >> i could have stayed home today, but i want to do -- excuse me. i want to do my part to make sure he's brought to justice. >> somebody's got to investigate it. somebody's got to do something. >> he doesn't deserve to be out in the streets. >> we have learned the california department of corporations and the department of motor vehicles have turned over their files to the santa clara county district attorney for possible charges. on the phone, ron says he doesn't want to comment on our
6:48 pm

all right. let's get to sports with henry wofford. >> hello. big news in berkeley. a 3-9 season is unacceptable in bear territory. today the head football coach was fired after 11 years with the team. he will, by the way, receive $6.9 million in compensation. the bears lost their final five games of the regular season. the bears were ranked as high as number two in the country in 2007, but the team is 23-27 over the past four years. tedford won a school record 82 games. the athletic director says letting the coach go was a difficult decision. >> jeff tedford is a good man who has brought great success and celebration to this university and who deserves to occupy a place of honor in the cal family. his legacy is unquestioned. however, the current state of our program is not what our
